The Club Room

ROAD WARRIOR SUPPORT

Affinia 50 was built, renovated, and renovated again, all with the intent of better suiting the needs and expectations of the business traveler.

The suite’s work desk, located in the living area, was large and accommodating.  Power outlets were numerous and within easy access throughout the suite, and the desk area was no exception; two popup outlets on the desk surface were all I needed to charge my laptop and smartphone.  The white leather chair was ribbed for comfort, and although it lacked armrests and was non-ergonomic, its height was adjustable and I was able to get comfortable and stay that way for hours.

I opened my MacBook Air on the desk and selected Affinia’s guest network from the Wi-Fi menu.  While Affinia’s Internet is somewhat pricey, at $14.95 plus tax for twenty-four hours of Internet access, it was quite speedy.  The hotel also offers a week of Internet access for $62.95, or a monthly pass for $245.95.

If working from the room isn’t essential, I would highly recommend making use of the comfortable Club Room on the second floor of the hotel.  It can best be described as an upscale coffee lounge, equipped with ample seating, a large communal table supplied with many outlets, smaller tables for personal use, a fireside couch, and complimentary coffee.  The atmosphere was conducive for productivity, and what’s more, the Wi-Fi was complimentary, and just as speedy.

Located off of the Club Room, the Den can be closed off for business meetings of up to 20 people for approximately $750 per day.  The furniture and seating can be arranged easily, and a large HDTV is available for presentations.

WELLNESS

I sheepishly stowed my bathing suit when I realized that the Affinia 50 was in short supply of swimming pools.  However, a well-equipped gym is available around the clock on the second floor.  Despite my desire to avoid exercise and unwind in the room, it was somewhat comforting to know that a 3:00 a.m. jog on a treadmill was only 17 floors away.  Elliptical machines, bikes, weight machines, and free weights are also available, and although there is a large changing room and walk-in shower, I was a little let down by the absence of a steam room or sauna.
